Benfield Motor Group has taken on Hyundai for the first time at a new dealership opened on Scotswood Road, Newcastle.
The new Benfield Hyundai replaces the previous Renault showroom which is being consolidated into Benfield's hub dealership at Benfield Road. The dealership will still continue to offer full service and repair facilities for Renault.
Nigel McMinn, Benfield's managing director, said: "We have an enormous territory stretching from Hexham in the west to Berwick in the north and with Hyundai's increasing popularity we are expecting similar success in Newcastle to the success we have experienced with their sister company Kia."
Benfield Hyundai is now the only Hyundai dealership in Newcastle.
The addition of Hyundai joins Benfield’s other franchises which include, Nissan, Volkswagen, Honda, Alfa Romeo, Renault, Skoda and Kia in the north east region along with Ford, Lexus and Toyota in west Yorkshire.
